BTW, re Aldrin being the “2nd man to set foot on the Moon”:
Armstrong (the “1st one”, August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) and Aldrin — in tandem — set 2 pairs of feet on the Moon for a few hours during NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, with colleague Michael Collins remaining in the spacecraft. See NASA article
reposted with corrections re references used — quote below is from REDDIT (July of this year) multiply requited across the webosphere; as to the reportedly 1st public report in 2005 on the UFO sighting, the date/venue has to be verified.
Well, why not “aliens”?! An online mention of the convincing “sighting” by Buzz Aldrin, the second man to step on the Moon, got MC thinking about getting ready and keeping in mind the possibility of actual Contact in the not-so-distant future.
We must have (let’s call them) Aliens Hypothesis enthusiasts among our fans out there and in here, right? Buzz Aldrin has the “proof by observation”, which he reportedly first shared publicly in 2005 (per source though the YouTube vid to which the article links is a 2011 upload of a coverage some days earlier).

1. MC has been remiss 😦 😦 😦 — marking with some delay the 45th anniversary of the July 20, 1969 1st-and-2nd Moon landing…

2. Earlier in July he is multiply reported to have written in a Reddit AMA Q and A session:
“On Apollo 11 en route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world — it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And I feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don’t know. So technically, the definition could be “unidentified.”
3. A PREDICTABLE TWIST — www features on Aldrin in connection with the 45 Anniversary celebration: the notion of COLONIZATION of space, in Aldrin’s case Mars, recurs:
- “The second man to ever walk on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, has implored the world to step up its efforts to COLONISE Mars”
- “Buzz Aldrin Opens Up About ‘UFO’ Encounter, Mars COLONY Hopes”
(emphasis in article titles added)
The curious HISTORICAL TURN, though, is that the possible existence of civilizations “more civilized/advanced” than earthlings coincides with the C-intent. So, how might “colonization” work this time around?
